@journal.org. talk a little bit about proposition 8 in california. as the impact what could happen this time around? guest: let me go back and say, marriage equality is no longer a partisan issue. if you look at socio-economic trends across this country, americans from all walks of life, all parts of this country, all sorts of americans, republicans, democrats, catholics, episcopalians, they all support marriage equality in majority's right now. that is probably one of the largest of allusions of has taken place since 2006 and 2008. you are right. perhaps the most high-profile marriage equality battle took place in 2008 in california around prop 8. unfortunately, we lost by just a few percentage points. as a result of that, prop. 8, a group called the american foundation for equal rights decided to launch a constitutional challenge for that vote. and it stands for is right now before the supreme court and on november 20, they will decide whether or not to take up that case. host: a paul talking about support for gay marriage. referenced that 50% of those who were polled, say it should be on the bal

with the rest of california. should san francisco experience another catastrophic earthquake and fire, visiting firefighters will not have easy access to available water. we need standardized fire hydrants. i would like to begin a discussion about a department of public safety. this is a combination of the police, fire and emergency services into one department. there could be a cost savings due to a reduction in department heads and fewer employees required. presently, this is in existence in the city of sunnyvale. park lawnses should include maintenance. currently they do not. unfortunately today when a park is finished, we watch it fall apart before our eyes. parks and medians should be planted with california natives to provide sustenance for local fauna. solar windows should be installed in every new building. older buildings should be retrofitted with solar windows to reduce the urban heat effect in san francisco. the top of new buildings could have green roofs which could delay ask reduce stormwater discharge into the bay as much as 40%. i know many of you have already made up your minds

of baseball, san francisco california. i think people forgot this team won 94 games in the regular season in a division that is probably as under rated as any division in sports. beat two excellent teams to win the national league and go on to detroit and unfortunately with detroit with all due respect they didn't know what they were in for. [cheers and applause] you fans, this city, this organization, this team wants all of us, or tries to make all of us better men, better people, better husbands, better friends. larry alluded to it the life lessons watching these guys perform everyday and we have a phrase for it "feeding the beast". this game is a rugged game and like life you need to put a lot into it and they became teammates and competed like nobody has seen. i am humbled to be part of this. i am so happy for all our family and friends and this is why we do this, and you folks will be etched in time and in history as one of the greatest teams not only in san francisco history but in baseball.
